I bought game yesterday and play koblenz scenario.
When I plan a attack,I cannot click support unit correctly.
When I try to click one of them,I click other unit next to them.
Please let me know the solution.

This is a known bug. I reported it in the beta test but it has not been fixed.

What's happening is the Planner window is loading at a certain width, and then the width of the window is changing slightly when the text blurb describing your expected losses gets longer or shorter as you start to include units in the attack. The window re-sizes, but the clickable unit markers don't update their locations at the same time, so they're now offset.

It's a known bug, and as a workaround you can drag the planner window a tiny bit to force it to "redraw" the window and unit counters. If you've got good eyes, setting the "Dialog Medium Font" to be a few notches smaller (By using the "Font Editor" in Player Options) will keep the window from dramatically re-shaping itself as that expected-losses text changes.

Terrific.

With every attempt to play or create a scenario or read a thread I learn more and more about this unfinished game which I paid $65 for the CD and shipping (bad idea).

How does none of this get tested? Years and years in the making and testing, and per response here reported in BETA, but still released broken. I really feel cheated AGAIN by Matrix. These games are not cheap. And there certainly is a lot of players and people willing to give free time to make it better, and still it gets released broken. It is not much different than TOAW3 with revised GUI and graphics from what I can see. Maybe a tweak here and there on air and naval or AI.

This game release disgusts me to the core because of the price and unfinished state of the game.

I hope patches fix this.

I'm working on a patch to fix the issues I know about. There's a thread at the top which lists the planned fixes. I won't give out a release date, but I'm expecting it to be 'very soon.' All of those planned fixes are planned for the patch. I'm capturing the rest in Jira so I can look at them later. I'm actually taking next week off to make sure they get fixed.

If for the time being you want to try the workaround that changes the Dialog Medium Font size, I have posted a screenshot of it so you can see what it looks like before you try it:
